Thank you very much! I didn't know this board, looks very interesting (and surprisingly cheap, on Ali).

You'll need to get an FTDI USB to TTL adapter to program them.

Hello everyone,

maybe I am the newest to this forum.  I am a hobbyist. I just started building small arduino projects and became fascinated by using XOD IDE. The great and high quality videos by Dronebot encouraged me more to peruse it. 

I have a clinical lab. With high volume of specimens and would like to build arduino controllers to some what "automate " the work flow of my lab i.e. I want to link these arduino controllers to my database and by scanning a barcode the patient  records in the data base should update automatically. Is this possible?

many thanks

Hi Ahejazi. Welcome to the forums.

This is certainly possible.  Although exactly what you will need to do this will depend on how you are storing your database and any other software associated with that database.   It also may be possible that you'll need to move up to a Raspberry Pi.  I can't say since I don't know the details of what you want to do.  But a Raspberry Pi is far more powerful than an Arduino.   A Raspberry Pi is basically equivalent to a full-size computer.   I'm certain that a Raspberry Pi will do that job.  But you may also be able to do it with an Arduino too.  Like I say, this can depend on your main data base software and program.  Sounds like a good project.  Very best wishes on your progress with it.

I am a recently retired IT person.  I have an EE degree but have been working in the computer field for decades.  I love working with electronic projects and I now have more time to do it.  I have setup some sensors using z-wave/zigbee and Smartthings for some home monitoring/automation.   I have dabbled with an Arduino and Raspbery Pi but nothing beyond experimentation to get familiar with them. I am also a licensed amateur radio operator. I just happened upon the Dronebot video on YouTube and now here I am.  I have an old defunct Roomba I might use to build a test robot. Watching the DB1 videos and was very inspired but I need to start much simpler. I love the idea of this forum and will be spending time reading posts. Thanks Bill for all your work and excellent videos.

Welcome aboard!  There is also a thread on here "For the Hams on board" so the non-hams don't have to be bothered by all of our "static."

Hello everyone, my name is Albert and I have compiled over 75 years in the course of a lifetime.

I am a retired steelmaking process engineer but I still work part time repairing projection lasers 

Home

I am also a mentor to a great bunch of high school kids who design and build competition robots

https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc

https://titaniumtitans.org/

Electronics has been a hobby for me ever since I was a kid.  I had my ham license before I had my drivers license.  I was facinated by the DB1 project because we are looking for a small robot that is fully functional but can be easily carried in the back of a car to mall shows, schools etc.  Our competition robots weigh around 120 lbs. and it takes two people and a cargo van to transport them.  We could use something like DB1 for our lady mentors to take with them whem making an outreach presentation.

Best regards to all

I watched the "First" video.  Pretty awesome!  I was also very glad to see that the robot competitions were very constructive and not robots trying to destroy each other in a robotics demolition derby.   So it was very nice to see the constructive competition.  That's awesome.  I wish they had something like that back when I was in high school.

Great work!

G'Day from down under!

My name is Amer, from Melbourne Australia. I am glad to have found dronebotworkshop youtube channel, love it. Been watching the whole series on DB1, planning to build something similar to it. Looking forward to participating in this forum!

Stay Positive!

I am retired living in Alta Loma, Calif., USA.
Retired from being a Computer systems consultant. Programmer, etc.

 
My main hobby has been Woodworking for the last several years.

I got interested in a CNC system, from Dave Gatton, which has made it more possible for one can get (build) a CNC for as little as $1,200 or so. In the process of studying for that, I ran into the Fusion 360 program which could be used to design, generate g-code, and feed to the CNC system. Was nice to see that it was FREE to hobbiests! So I got it... Had a HELL of a Time getting to know it and using it.

Then I ran into some 3D Printing articles (posts)... and was surprised how the prices had dropped... to make it possible for me to get into that TOO! Awesome field! Love it... Have been able to use Fusion 360 to get very simple things Printed.

  
Then, I ran into a guy named Paul McWhorter who had some youtube videos on Teaching Fusion 360 or Die Trying! I studied them and got the doors open to the program so I could do more than before... He opened the doors for me to Fusion 360.
Then, I noticed some of the other videos he was publishing... On the Arduino system! Showed how simple it was to program and EASY to do various other things... NOW, I'm knee deep into that! Looks like I'm learning the C++ language that I never did learn way back in my Programming days... AWESOME... My eyes have been opened AGAIN!

I bought the Starter Kit and have playing with it.
I have decided that I want to make a simple Weather Station... and have been studying for it now.
In the process, I found The DroneBot Workshop and all of his videos that seem to be shedding a lot of light on the subject. That's why I am here today... To get more into the Electronics end of it...

I am a Amateur Radio Operator, very inactive, but still have my General License... So, I am not NEW to some of this stuff... especially the Arduino, etc. stuff.

So, that is about me in a nut shell... Didn't mean to be so WORDY... but, when I get a chance to use a soap box, I tend to USE IT... HI HI... 🙂 😀

Later, I thank you for putting up with me while I get my feet wet here,

Joe Lyddon

Have Fun,
Joe Lyddon

Hi I Aleksandr, I from Siberia, Krasnoyarsk. I finished institute just some years ago and now my hobby is arduino, 3p printers, and other electronic stuff. I like to do helpful projects and just for fun. I don't have job connected with any electronic stuff, so I am not very pro in it. But I like it very much and going to build my useful robot)
